The current systems for the Undergraduate (UG) and Postgraduate (PG) prospectus have remained static and undeveloped for a number of years.  Consequently basic information has either been added in an ad-hoc fashion (e.g. html in a single field) or omitted entirely.  The systems are no longer fit for purpose and are out of step with competitor activity.

What will the project deliver?

Develop fit-for-purpose systems to meet market expectations.

What is in scope and what is not?

Objectives

The Deliverables agreed in the Project Brief were all achieved

The project covered a set of required enhancements to a system which had recently been migrated to the IS Support model.

The project remained in scope and met all the business objectives agreed in the Project Brief. A support call was also included in the project to avoid clashes of developers in the same environment.

 

12/13 Statutory Returns revisions

 

The SFC are moving from funding at Programme level to funding at Course level (price groups). SFC and HESA have revised requirements in line with the new RUK fee regulations. Teaching Load changes will be required for RUK fees. A range of other changes have been introduced.

This is an annual project. However, for 12/13, the requirements are substantially greater than in more stable years.

Background

Healthcare, Animal By-Product and Radioactive waste from various University premises must be disposed of safely and in accordance with legislative requirements. Different types of waste (e.g. sharps, Animal By-Product, Healthcare, Cytotoxic, etc) must be disposed of via different routes and effectively tracked to the point of treatment/destruction.  In addition, producing departments must be recharged appropriately for waste they produce.  Different charges are applied depending on the container type, size and contents/route.
